Bommai Campaigns in Hangal, Holds Meeting at Shivakumar Udasi’s House


The CM took the opportunity to send a message indicating that members of the Udasi family were actively involved in the campaign.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai arrived in Hangal on Sunday to campaign for the by-election. He held a meeting of party leaders at the house of MP Shivakumar Udasi.

The meeting appeared to be a response to rumors that the Udasi family were upset that the party had not nominated one of them for the indirect votes. The election was brought about by the death of Channabasappa Udasi, deputy and father of the deputy. There was plenty of speculation that one of the three women in the family – Mr. Udasi’s wife, Neelamma, his daughter Jayashree Tilavalli, or Revati, his daughter-in-law, would get the ticket.

But the party chose Shivaraj Sajjan, former deputy. This led to reports that the Udasis, a local Lingayat family with enough weight, were upset.

The CM took the opportunity to send a message indicating that members of the Udasi family were actively involved in the campaign.

Nalin Kumar Kateel, chairman of the party’s state unity, ministers V. Sunil Kumar and BC Patil, leaders like Aravind Bellad and Munirathna Naidu, and Shivakumar Udasi were present at the meeting.

The CM addressed a few gatherings in neighboring villages.

Before leaving for Hangal, the CM announced that the BJP candidates would win both seats as there was a pro-BJP environment in these areas. “I will be spending time in the campaign in both seats,” he said.

“The leaders of Congress contributed to the losses suffered by the Sangur cooperative factory. “

“The factory with its own history. The leaders of Congress have ensured its closure. It was the BJP that relaunched it, ” he said.

Opposition leader Siddaramaiah denied CM Basavaraj Bommai’s statement that members of Congress were responsible for the losses suffered at the Sangur sugar factory.

“Who were the presidents of the Sangur factory? No one other than BJP leaders like Shivaraj Sajjan and CM Udasi. How can Congress be responsible for the losses in the family then? », He questioned while addressing the journalists at the airport of Hubballi.
